Interview with Garry VonMyhr Co-Founder of Tech Defenders
Join us today as we welcome Garry VonMyhr, Co-Founder of Tech Defenders, Mobile Defenders and Genius iPhone Repair to discuss his journey starting and running multiple businesses in the mobile electronics space. We all know that mobile devices, phones, laptops, and tablets are critically important in the business and educational markets as well as our personal lives. When these devices stop working, business stops and people panic. Garry VonMyhr has spent the last decade creating and building companies to keep our devices up and running as well as managing the reverse cycle when we upgrade or those products become obsolete.  Garry shares the story of how these businesses have evolved to take advantage of new opportunities and to get ahead of changing markets. You’ll learn about the importance of delegating to develop a strong team of employees and how creating and promoting a great culture can help not only with attracting talent but suppliers and partners as well. Join your hosts Shannon Jean and Dave Hamilton and listen in for some great lessons in Small Business Management and then join us at the Small Business Support Group to ask questions and share your own story.

Accountability Leads to Small Business Success
Have you found the Small Business Show useful? You can give a little love back to the show by leaving a quick review for us. It has a tremendous impact and could be the most powerful thing you do today. Thanks! Being focused on accountability is a powerful way to steer yourself and your Small Business towards success. When you are holding yourself accountable, you are in charge of the actions you can take, however small they may be, to adjust, iterate and correct problems that may be holding you back. Part one of our two-part series on accountability focuses on your own personal accountability and the concept of training yourself to believe that you are at least 85% responsible for your success with just 15% depending on random events. The premise of this idea comes to us from The 85% Solution by Linda Galindo. With this 85/15 concept, your chances of being successful are much higher. People that blame their problems, mistakes, and failures on forces beyond their control are doomed to mediocrity. Join your hosts Shannon Jean and Dave Hamilton for this episode to learn how to train your brain to embrace accountability with techniques related to responsibility, empowerment and more. We then dive into tips for how to react and adjust to your mistakes to create a powerful system for writing your own story of success. Listen in, then share your own tips and get your questions answered at the Small Business Support Group!
